Disney's system doesn't do a thing for people like me. It only makes things worse because they don't take into consideration that autism doesn't go away as a child transitions to adulthood. Some autistic people are adults and have a huge obsession with Disney like me. I would love to go to Disney World, even Disneyland for that matter. However, I know it will never happen because my special needs are too great.
What they need to do is research this stuff. They need to understand that not everyone is autistic either. Not everyone has the STAMINA to do their parks. Sure, when I was younger, I never needed the old pass. That's because we wet during the off season when I was in school. It was much easier at that time to access the parks. Now that I'm older, I have major emotional problems and severe mental health issues too. Doing Disney would be way out of the loop for me.
I read something in a blog. The person said this:
Have you ever tried telling a non verbal child with autism that he can’t ride his favorite ride yet? What are they going to do when the child has an ensuing meltdown? Call Security? What pray tell do they expect us to do while we wait for the time to ride? Most children with autism have hyper focus on one thing. That’s all they can think about. There is no transitioning from one thing to another with ease.I may not be non-verbal, but I'm still autistic. I still have these kinds of problems, and I do wonder myself what they would do if a child or adult had some sort of panic attack. A lot of their cast members aren't even TRAINED to deal with this either. They don't understand what they are dealing with or what to expect. They are likely to make the experiences worse for those like us. All because of their sudden ignorance to our situation, along with those around us.
